A Piece of Bert Berns

by John Platt
Jenny Anderson

"Cry Baby," "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love," "Hang On Sloopy," "Here Comes the Night," "I Want Candy," "Piece of My Heart," "Tell Him," "Twist and Shout" - all big hits of the '60s, performed by artists as varied as Solomon Burke, The Exciters, Janis Joplin, and The Strangeloves. What do they have in common? They were all written or co-written by Bert Berns. Never heard of him?

Newport Folk 2014: Friday

Team FUV is back at Fort Adams State Park to transmit molecules of music and pixels of photos across the interwebs back to New York. Friday was an absolutely beautiful day, weather-wise and otherwise. We're here with our friends from NPR Music to send home audio of the main stage sets, which we're archiving in the FUV Vault. We'll keep this page updated as we go.

On the Fort Stage Friday: Ryan Adams, Band of Horses, Jenny Lewis, Devil Makes Three, Anais Mitchell & Jefferson Hamer

We also got to run around and enjoy sets from the other three stages, with highlights from Wisconsin's Phox, our hometown friends Lake Street Dive - who brought their friend Mavis Staples out to sing "Bad Self-Portraits" - and the great Communion Records showcase on the (indoor!) Museum Stage, which included Hozier, Willy Mason and Bear's Den. See the photo gallery below for the emotion, the sweat and tears, the colorful festy getups, and a really cute dog named Annie.

The Antlers - FUV Live - 2014

by Alisa Ali

This Brooklyn trio first started making real traction in 2009 when they released their third full-length album, Hospice. As the title suggests, that record dealt with some pretty weighty subject matter, but it was presented in such a moving way that it was impossible not to get swept away by it. Since then, the band has continued to hone their craft of creating stirring sonic landscapes. Their latest release, Familiars, is a thoughtful and deliberately-paced collection of songs that instills calmness and warmth. It’s an enveloping release that rewards multiple listens. The Antlers recently visited Studio A to play us some of their new material and to talk about their new record.
